There comes a point during the Winter months when we have a lack of vitamin D and the Winter blues take hold and make us miserable. Then we get a fifty degree day a few weeks ago, a forty degree day this week and our spirits start to rise.
Only in Wisconsin does the next day bring minus degree temperature and Winter storm warnings for the Friday and next Monday and Tuesday. I, for one,am getting pretty tired of this white powder.
Let us get a little more positive, the deadline is drawing near for early registration. Come out to the Forest Mall on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and visit with members of the Fond du Lac Soccer board of directors, you can have some personal attention and get all of your questions answered. K107 will also be out there doing a live remote. We hope to see you there.
If you know of a child that struggles with the English language or their parents do not speak or read much English, we have a conversion icon on the registration form. Help us reach this segment of our community and get them registered to play this summer. The more kids we have playing, the higher number of teams we have per league, and the more fun we can experience this summer.
As I channel surfed a little this week I found the U20 Men’s National Team playing Haiti. The U.S. won by a 2-1 score after going up 2-0 in the first half. Haiti appeared to be the better team for most of the match with a much healthier attack then the U.S.
It was disappointing to watch poor defending destroy the National team two weeks ago then to see that as a major problem with the U20s. We need creative players to score goals but it would seem we also have to find some athletes committed to play defense.
It is less than a month away before we get the girls high school season started. Hopefully after Tuesday the snow starts to go away for good and we can get outside right away. It is not looking too promising but we do live in Wisconsin so there is hope!
With that being said, hopefully the girls in the area are getting prepared for the spring, if you haven’t started already, start kicking a ball around and work on that fitness!
As long as we are talking high school soccer, remember to put your high school team together for the FDLSA summer season. The U15-19 age group will be gender specific and they will play 7v7 with full-size goals.
The players will pick their own teams with roster caps at 12. The fee is $50 and that does not go up until after March 31st. Roster forms will be on the website http://www.fondysoccer.com and should be mailed in. The Board will match the incoming registrations with the team roster. This is another positive developmental opportunity — take advantage of it!
Keep on Kick’in
